Ok, the poll is up. And remember people, your votes have to be bolded for me to count them.

I'm glad yours won out as well, for obvious reasons :).

Also, configuring Loyalty Shred is perfectly welcome. I was under the impression at the time that this would be a common 3 person squad. So, having a range of 4 and the odds stay where they are at sounds pretty reasonable. With them being unique, I don't see them being very expensive.

I agree with this, as long as we are using Necro's mod to scorpiusx's Shred.

So:

Necroblade's Sense Weakness

Modified Loyalty Shred (Whenever an opponent activates a unit with a "Bonding" ability within 4 spaces of a Doggin Hunter that you control, you may roll the 20 sided die. If you roll a 14 or higher, negate that ability during this turn.)

Larmo's Disengage

Great stuff here. I love the way that Necro's ability creates a new kind of bonding that is very thematic. Smart.

I think we're all in agreement here. :D

Loyalty Shred (the modified version)
Sense Weakness
Disengage

500points May 14th, 2008 06:43 PM

Re: Create-a-Unit Part 6 - Abilities poll
 
Divide and Conquer
Sense Weakness
Pack Formation

This should make them pretty good. I hope these guys are 90 points.
They might be to powerful for 90 points though.

I've gotta go with 90 to make an even 200 with Dund.

I'm with you on this. I think only have 2 of them and being unique the cost might be justified (they are lower defense than the Zettians, but have much cooler and more powerful abilities--plus movement...). It is a hard call, but being unique is a limit that helps balance the cost.

I'd love to playtest them (if life allowed such things right now...), but my initial reaction is 90 as well.

Re: Create-a-Unit Part 6.5 - Cost Submission
 
Well, using JEB's Theoretical Cost Breakdown thingy, I came out to about 95 without factoring in the squad size or anything... so a squad of two + Unique could possibly even bring things lower. But without playtesting, I think I'll go with the common consensus of 90 Points being best.

...but I'll hold out on voting for a little while, to see other ideas.

Oh, and one more thing. Do we have any idea what size these babies will be? Small? Medium? Large? Double Spaced? Single Spaced?

NecroBlade May 19th, 2008 07:40 PM

Re: Create-a-Unit Part 6.5 - Cost Submission
 
Large Double, like Dund, I would assume. Excellent question, though.

Re: Create-a-Unit Part 7.5 - Figure Submission
 
OK, we are up to the figure submission. Check the first post for details. :D
Price poll was skipped because there was only one price submission.

I browsed D&D Miniatures, and here's a few I found. Not many that really fit... but the most recent is Desert of Desolation #36 - Shadow Mastiff. It's dog like, black, kinda mutant looking, and pretty cheap - only a dollar or two on eBay. I can't find too many good pictures, though...

Then there's the Night Below #19 - Greater Basilisk. Not as dog-like, but he's purple, and has the same spine thing as Dund. A tad more expensive... $3.00, give or take.

http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/NB...r_Basilisk.jpg

Blood War #49 - Ethereal Marauder might work... it really depends on what we want to consider a Doggin. He has the same color sceme and all, and definitely fits in with Dund, but he's definitely not canine. $1.00 - $2.00.

War of the Dragon Queen #29 - Displacer Beast Pack Lord. Is a kitty, but very mutant and would probably fit in. Roughly $4.00, though... steeper.

Just to note - I have NO idea how large any of these figures are. They may be too big or too small for a base, or be weird sized, or something... just spitting out ideas, really.
